I saw this in the anchor dictionary. We will be discussing cosmological geography in the series.

Also what is interesting is the ancient people outside Israel believed that the world came into existence thru chaos or
disorder among the gods. The distinction is in reality, humanity has caused chaos or disorder in the Macro Temple of
the Cosmos.
What is further interesting, as we see here that the chaos is linked to the deep waters. The book of Revelation talks
about there being no more "seas" in the Kingdom. This does not mean there will be no more water, it is understood
that the seas are Israel's enemies. Enemies no longer causing chaos.
See why this topic is so essential! Just this one geographical element of the cosmos.
Living waters takes on a whole new context.

The last few months I have been focusing on studying and learning about how integrated the Macro
Temple of YHWH is interwoven all thru Scripture. I encourage everyone,as I mentioned here on facebook

a few weeks ago, to begin to look at Scripture as essentially a Temple Text as it begins in Genesis One
with the Macro Temple of the Cosmos, and also ends in the Book of Revelation with it as well. Everything
in between those bookends is ultimately showing what humanity's functioning role is in that arena.
I am working on the power point for the Introduction for this series, and below in the comments , you will
see the material we will be using through out the study. I highly encourage you to get these resources.
They will quickly become go to guides in your library.

The entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation is in essence a "Temple Text".


It begins with the Marco- Temple in the Heavens and ends with the Macro-Temple in the
Heavens.Everything in between is YHWH showing how His Creation has a functioning role within
HIS Temple.
Simply Fascinating.

This is completely amazing on how embedded in the text we can see elements of YHWH's Temple in the
Cosmos, referring back to the original Temple text in Genesis 1.

Check this out..


There are 7 speeches or texts given to Moshe on the construction of the Tabernacle and its furnishings,
all beginning with the phrase, "And spoke to Mosheh" Which can be found in Exodus 25:1, 30:11,
30:17,30:22,30:34,31:1 and the seventh in 31:12
Now notice that there is a distinction between the first 6 of these speeches and then the seventh....
The Seventh, in Exodus 31:12-18
Exo 31:12 And spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Exo 31:13 And you, speak to the children of Yisral, saying, My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all
means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, , am setting
you apart.
Exo 31:14 And you shall guard the Sabbath, for it is set-apart to you. Everyone who profanes it shall
certainly be put to death, for anyone who does work on it, that being shall be cut off from among his
people.
Exo 31:15 Six days work is done, and on the seventh is a Sabbath of rest, set-apart to . Everyone
doing work on the Sabbath day shall certainly be put to death.
Exo 31:16 And the children of Yisral shall guard the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their
generations as an everlasting covenant.
Exo 31:17 Between Me and the children of Yisral it is a sign forever. For in six days made the
heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.
Exo 31:18 And when He had ended speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Mosheh two tablets of
the Witness, tablets of stone, written with the finger of Elohim.
The extended text to keep the Sabbath after the other 6 speeches of construction directly references the
Seven Days of Creation found in Genesis 1!
The Earthly Tabernacle is a microcosm of the Heavenly Tabernacle. Genesis 1 is an actual Temple text showing the
7 day pattern of YHWH and His Temple in the Cosmos.

Connections of the Earthly Temple to the Heavenly Temple in the Cosmos...


Josephus 5:5:4
4. As to the holy house itself, which was placed in the midst [of the inmost court], that most sacred part of
the temple, it was ascended to by twelve steps; and in front its height and its breadth were equal, and
each a hundred cubits, though it was behind forty cubits narrower; for on its front it had what may be
styled shoulders on each side, that passed twenty cubits further. Its first gate was seventy cubits high, and
twenty-five cubits broad; but this gate had no doors; for it represented the universal visibility of heaven,
and that it cannot be excluded from any place. Its front was covered with gold all over, and through it the
first part of the house, that was more inward, did all of it appear; which, as it was very large, so did all the
parts about the more inward gate appear to shine to those that saw them; but then, as the entire house
was divided into two parts within, it was only the first part of it that was open to our view. Its height
extended all along to ninety cubits in height, and its length was fifty cubits, and its breadth twenty. But that
gate which was at this end of the first part of the house was, as we have already observed, all over
covered with gold, as was its whole wall about it; it had also golden vines above it, from which clusters of
grapes hung as tall as a man's height. But then this house, as it was divided into two parts, the inner part
was lower than the appearance of the outer, and had golden doors of fifty-five cubits altitude, and sixteen
in breadth; but before these doors there was a veil of equal largeness with the doors. It was a Babylonian
curtain, embroidered with blue, and fine linen, and scarlet, and purple, and of a contexture that was truly
wonderful. Nor was this mixture of colors without its mystical interpretation, but was a kind of image of the
universe; for by the scarlet there seemed to be enigmatically signified fire, by the fine flax the earth, by the

blue the air, and by the purple the sea; two of them having their colors the foundation of this resemblance;
but the fine flax and the purple have their own origin for that foundation, the earth producing the one, and
the sea the other. This curtain had also embroidered upon it all that was mystical in the heavens,
excepting that of the [twelve] signs, representing living creatures.
Notice that this first Parochet was embroidered with the Heavens i.e Cosmos!
Mar 1:10 And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the HEAVENS BEING TORN OPEN and
the Spirit coming down on Him like a dove.
Mar 1:11 And a voice came out of the heavens, You are My Son, the Beloved, in whom I did delight.
Mat 27:50 And cried out again with a loud voice, and gave up His spirit.
Mat 27:51 And see, the veil of the Dwelling Place was TORN IN TWO from top to bottom, and the earth
was shaken, and the rocks were split,
Mat 27:52 and the tombs were opened, and many bodies of the set-apart ones who had fallen asleep
were raised,
Mat 27:53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection, they went into the set-apart city and
appeared to many.
Mat 27:54 And when the captain and those with him, who were guarding , saw the earthquake and
all that took place, they feared exceedingly, saying, Truly this was the Son of Elohim!
Mar 15:37 And cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.
Mar 15:38 And the veil of the Dwelling Place was TORN IN TWO from top to bottom.
Mar 15:39 And when the captain, who was standing opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and
breathed His last, he said, Truly this Man was the Son of Elohim!
Eze_1:1 And it came to be in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth of the month, as I was among the
exiles by the River Kebbar, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of Elohim.
Mat_3:16 And having been immersed, went up immediately from the water, and see, the heavens were opened,
and He saw the Spirit of Elohim descending like a dove and coming upon Him,
Act_7:56 and he said, Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Adam standing at the right hand of Elohim!

Isa 63:15 Look down from the heavens, and see from Your set-apart and comely dwelling. Where are Your ardour
and Your might, the stirring of Your inward parts and Your compassion toward me? Are they withheld?
Isa 63:16 For You are our Father, though Abbraham does not know us, and Yisral does not recognise us. You, O,
are our Father, our Redeemer Your Name is from of old.

This is the photo Heiser uses in his powerpoint when he starts talking about ancient cosmology....
Understanding the mindset and culture of the Temple geography is huge.

My focus on this series will be mainly on the ideas of what the Ancient near East believed concerning the cosmos as
a Temple and how this ties in with our Covenant with YHWH. We will explore the context of Genesis 1-3 and talk
about how this text is a Temple text and was never intended to be a modern day rebuttal to evolution. All the ANE
knew there was a "Creator", but the context of cosmology has to do with how the cosmos "functioned" for the gods
and the people.
For example, an "act of creation" in the minds of the ancient near east was not defined by the material of an object,
but rather an object was defined by its function in the cosmos and within the reality of the people. This rings true in
Genesis as well.
So you see this just one small example of how our understanding of the culture and context has been skewed and
flawed over the course of generations.It is my hope after we study multiple areas of Ancient Cosmology that we can
begin to see beyond just the earthly, the form, the mechanics of our 5 senses mentality of the Kingdom and move
onto a clearer idea of the Heavenly, the function, and the character surrounding the Kingdom of YHWH and His
Macro-Temple of the Cosmos.

Torah Nugget Kedoshim Leviticus 19:1-20:27 (2013-2014)


In this week's torah nugget , our focus will be on YHWH's prohibition of child sacrifice and how these
Scripture's cannot be used against what Messiah has done for us in the Heavenly Temple.
Remember that we serve the KING and Creator of all things, the Sovereign over the Cosmos. If we
understand that we as men and women have caused the chaos in the cosmos by sinning right from
the Garden and the KING has to bring Order back to HIS Cosmic Temple,then all else begins to
make sense in Scripture. Ladies and Gentlemen, I encourage all of you to please investigate the
Temple, the sacrifices and the graded stages of impurity/purity in the camp. Investigate them from
their proper context of the ancient near east, not your modern day ideology. It is only when we put
down our pre-conceived notions attached to religion, that we can truly begin to understand ancient
covenant. I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share this area from a different perspective.

Joh 15:13 No one has greater love than this: that one should lay down his life for his friends.

I will be recording the nugget tonight and will post the link tomorrow. Please allow me the opportunity
to share this area from maybe a different aspect.

Exo 26:30 And you shall raise up the Dwelling Place according to its pattern which you were shown on
the mountain.
The Temple/Tabernacle is meant to be a Micro-Cosmos and the Cosmos is to be understood as YHWH's
Macro-Temple.

Torah Nugget Yitro- Exodus 18:1-20:26 (20132014)


In this weeks Torah Nugget we will be looking in depth at the understanding and importance
of Mount Sinai in its relation to what the nations and Israel believed concerning the Cosmic
Mountain and the intersecting point of Heaven and Earth. This will link more Scriptural
language of the garden of Eden, the Tabernacle, the Temple and the significance of the
Temple Mount today.

While continuing to study this topic out over the weekend in


the eyes of the ancient near east and Israel, the whole flood acount makes perfect sense
with the water subsiding and the ark resting on Mt Ararat -ie cosmic mountain.
What does Noah do upon exiting the ark?
Builds an altar to YHWH!
Why?
To restore the continuity of YHWH and the functionality of HIS Order on the earth!
